Hometown Honeymoon

Who says a honeymoon has to be far from home? Whether you’re counting your pennies or simply unable to travel the globe, choosing to take a “staycation” is a great alternative to the traditional post-wedding trip. From the Riverwalk to the Hill Country, San Antonio is a prime destination for hometown honeymoons. Celebrate your nuptials with your darling by your side at one of our favorite, local romantic getaways.

La Cantera Hill Country Resort

Begin your new life together in style atop one of the highest points in San Antonio. Known as a “Texas oasis,” La Cantera Hill Country Resort is the perfect destination for newlywed lovebirds. Centrally located, this honeymooner hot spot features an adult-only pool, indulgent spa treatments, luxury shopping, delectable dining, and even a Hill Country wine tour. And while these amenities seem impossible to resist, you may find it difficult to leave your plush hotel room! Just outside your window spans unrivaled views of the Texas Hill Country and the San Antonio skyline—perfect for a classy and romantic retreat. Couples can equally enjoy this destination, whether your interest lies on the links, at the spa, or in the bedroom. Tip: Check out the resort’s “7 Never Ending Discoveries” for ideas to include in your honeymoon itinerary.

Deep in the heart of Texas, this charming bed-and-breakfast spa is the best of both worlds—rustic and romantic! Located near small, Texas Hill Country towns like Boerne, Sisterdale, and Comfort as well as larger cities like San Antonio and Austin, Paniolo Ranch is a quaint destination for a relaxing post-“I do” retreat. Consider checking out many of the wineries along the Texas Wine Trail or spending the day in tranquility at the B&B’s full service, on-site spa. Guesthouses overlook the picturesque lake and beautiful rolling hills, which are especially striking during wildflower season. It’s no wonder this destination has been a top pick by hometown honeymooners for years!
